'SurVive' Stichting Natuurkunst Drenthe

On a walk through the forest, you see tiny fragile white houses suspended from the trees above, then notice three oversized beds covered with a thick layer of moss that invite you for a rest. ‘Relax and enjoy your daily life’, is the message. Bed is the place of intimacy and relaxation. Bed is the place of regeneration and renewal of strength, a retreat from a world that demands so much.

We live in a society where people seem to be hurrying, instead of realising what it is they are doing. Where is the balance between tension and relaxation? Above the beds, amongst the branches, 500 paper thin houses made of porcelain hang, and sway in the wind like a mobile reminiscent of childhood, where stress and worry are nowhere to be found.
